Try riding on the other side of the road if you can.. This would eliminate/prove road camber.. Also check wheel alignment with a straight edge, running it down from both sides of the rear wheel, measuring the distance out from the front wheel.
Thanks for your helpful reply, much appreciated. I have checked wheel alignment with a straight edge running it down from both sides of the rear wheel and measured the distance out from the front wheel, but I could not find any difference between left and right side. So in my case this symptom of slightly pulling to the right is not caused by wheel alignment error.
And also it seems that the road camber is not the cause.

John,

Maybe measure each side, with your arm straight from your shoulder to the tips of your fingers?   :001:

And Alzo? Does your bike pull slightly to the right or left side when riding no-hands?

You lucky guy.
And how about the coolant level. Does the coolant level indicated on your bike remain constant?

It does...apart from blurry mirrors not much to complain about...even the Slipper clutch issues seems less with miles on the bike.

Sorry for the off-topic. I just asked this question because I saw that several people on the german forum reported that they had to refill coolant frequently, and their bike was manufactured in 2015.
